Brilliant experience! This was our first time in San Francisco and it was brilliant! The hotel was amazing! We were greeted nicely and helped with our bags and checked in almost straight away! Our room was overlooking the street which was really good but a bit annoying at 6:00 in the morning, becasue of the sound and the fact that... More

My wife and I stayed here as the second part of our honeymoon. The service at reception was fantastic, we were given a room which was lovely but unfortunately was a little noisy for my liking therefore we went back to reception and were given the option of viewing 3 further rooms, and we eventually decided on a room on...

Same day reservations made via alternate travel site. I phoned upon arrival at the airport to request a room with 2 beds. Reception immediately honored my request and offered an early check in. Once at the hotel, the front desk staff was welcoming and professional. I understood there were 2 buildings, historic and "premier" the first night we stayed on... More

We had the good fortune to be upgraded so we were in a 'premier king' room of the top floor of the new building at the back. It doesn't have much in the way of views but it is very quiet as it is away from the road and has a balcony overlooking the swimming pool area. The room was... More

I was given an "upgrade" since the hotel was full and put in a Premier room facing the pool. Room 327 is off an outside hallway facing the pool. There is a floor to ceiling window, which sounds nice -- but if you keep the curtains open everyone walking by can look into your room. There is part of a... More

We stayed here in 2008 and enjoyed it so thought we'd come back. This hotel was prepaid and we asked for a quiet room. 2nd floor room 220 was anything but quiet! A huge air conditioning return air duct in the ceiling that was so noisy I had to sleep with earplugs! The room was also dark and the glass... More

I wish i could recommend this hotel - it has comfortable beds, charming character, convenient location and friendly staff. BUT not the best choice if you go to bed relatively early because it is so noisy from the street - street drummers, bands playing in the square, street noise. They even provide earplugs in the room.
